The construction of a pivotal infrastructure project National Highway 144A connecting Akhnoor to Poonch reached a significant milestone today as the breakthrough ceremony for the Naushera Tunnel took place.
At least six workers are feared trapped in an under-construction tunnel along the Jammu-Srinagar national highway that collapsed on Friday in Jammu and Kashmir’s Ramban district, police sources said.
“At least six workers are feared trapped under the debris. Two workers have been rescued and shifted to hospital while others are missing,” sources added.
Reports from the area said a massive rescue operation is underway at the site.
Traffic has been stopped along the national highway.
